You may not be aware that there are several different methods of heating a pool.  The basic methods are:

  • Electric
  • Natural gas
  • Oil
  • Propane
  • Heat pump

Based on a swimming pool 15’ (4.57m) x 30’ (9.14m) with a required water temperature of 28oC and a swimming season of May to September the estimated heating cost would be:

  • Heat Pump (ZS500) – £364
  • Electric – £2,050
  • Oil – £1,480
  • Propane – £1,361
  • Natural Gas – £701

The figures above are calculated using the following energy costs:

Electric: £0.13 per kW/h

Propane Gas: £1.00/kg

Natural Gas: £0.04 per kW/h

Oil: £0.80 per litre

It looks like a bit of a no-brainer, doesn’t it?  The Zodiac Heat Pump ZS500 is much more economic than any other method.
